Promoting Renewable Energy and Sustainability Since 1972
NMSEA: Who We Are
The New Mexico Solar Energy Association (NMSEA) is an educational 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization,
dedicated to promoting solar energy and related sustainable practices. NMSEA was one of the first organizations in the country, founded in 1972, to seek methods and ideas on how to use renewable energy, how small villages could live
sustainably, and how to empower people through education about these issues. We
are currently an all-volunteer organization. Our
membership includes a diverse group of citizens including interested advocates
of solar energy, architects, building contractors, engineers, educators, and
planners specializing in renewable energy and sustainability.

Next meeting: Tuesday, June 25 at REI, 1550 Mercantile NE (6-8pm). Join NMSEA for sun-baked cookies and tips for powering your life with the sun! Our meeting this month will cover passive solar principles (including sun ovens) and photovoltaic (PV) basics. The public and NMSEA members are invited to join us on the 4th Tuesday of every month for a couple hours of "energy" and education. We will be having a mix of speakers and expert-led discussions. Come hang out with other concerned citizens to learn how you can do your part as we all transition toward a more sustainable lifestyle, or share your successes! Experts and novices are all encouraged to attend. NMSEA monthly Chapter Meetings are FREE & open to the public. We hope that you join us!

The SunChaser Program
NMSEA's nationally recognized SunChaser Education Program is one of our organization's principal outreach programs.

Sessions are guided to stimulate students' minds and show them that learning about energy is fun!
